'Balika Vadhu' actress Pratyusha Banerjee alleges molestation by cops
New Delhi: TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, created a buzz recently after she approached the police alleging that she has been molested by the cops in her residence in Kandivali, Mumbai.
Reportedly, Pratyusha, who rose to fame with the popular TV serial ‘Balika Vadhu', claims in her complaint that some persons dressed as policemen, barged into her flat and misbehaved with her. She also mentioned that the men left the place only after she threatened to approach Kandivali police.
While the actress is quite upset with the incident, the police has an entirely different story to narrate.
According to the media reports, a police officer denied the allegation saying four policemen in plain clothes had gone to the actress' flat today to trace one Rahul Singh who stays with her and against whom a non-cognisable (NC) offence has been registered. The officer denied any misbehaviour with the actress by the personnel.
The police officer stated that Rahul had allegedly manhandled a loan recovery agent, Amit Dalvi, when the latter had gone to collect instalment of car loan from him at her house on December 31.
The officer straight away rubbished the molestation allegations clarifying that some police personnel, along with Dalvi, went to the house on Sunday but couldn't find Rahul there. They went to her house again Monday, but were told by Pratyusha's mother that Rahul is in Goa following which they returned, the officer said.
However, no FIR has been registered yet, he added.
